The Sun reckons Daniel Levy has ‘caved in’ and agreed to allow the Tottenham striker to join Manchester City. The champions will have to cough up a whopping £160million, while Kane will sign a four or five-year contract worth £400,000 a week. Wowzers.
Apparently, Levy called Kane and his the centre-forward’s brother, who also acts as his agent, last Friday to inform them of his decision. Two days later, at his brother’s wedding, Kane is said to have ‘told of his joy’ at the development.
One teeny tiny problem: nowhere in the story does it suggest that City have agreed to meet Levy’s terms.
CITY OFFER QUARTET IN PART-EX
According to L’Equipe, City are still pushing for a part-exchange deal…
They have reportedly offered Spurs their pick of four players: Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva.
Of course, then City would then have to persuade whomever Levy picks to toddle off to Tottenham.
This one still has a long way to run, we suspect.
